All Dollar General Stores suck, that's their niche in the marketplace. Dollar General, Family Dollar, Dollar Tree and Big Lots, that's where you go if you can't afford WalMart and KMart, if they didn't suck they'd have to charge more, then they'd just be little WalMarts and they'd go out of business, it's not Macy's.

I was referring more to attitudes of employees.
And the general atmosphere. From what I have seen
most things in Dollar General stores (name brands such as Tide and stuff like that) are MORE expensive than Wal Mart anyway.

LOL, you got that right. Actually, I have only been there a time or two but, I just hate those stores. Unless you are buying something like clothes you are just throwing your money away. The cheapo toys break, the offbrand food is inedible, the housewares and decorations are usually predamaged. They kind of save you the trouble of destroying the items yourself!:)

That last part of your post is hillarious! We went in one a couple of weeks ago to look for a specific item that somebody had told us about.
The store just kind of has a nasty smell when you walk in the doors. We didn't buy anything.
But you are totally correct in that most everything in there is junk. And the employees are just rude!

I did make the mistake of buying some DG brand food one time. It was so nasty even my dog wouldn't eat it. I had actually fixed it for the kids. I tasted it and said NO WAY will I feed this to my kids. So I put it out for the dogs - and my dog took his paw and dumped the pan on the ground and then just stood there and looked at me.
Guess he was trying to make a statement.

I have however found some cool stuff from time to time at the Dollar Tree. Sometimes they have some cool holiday related stuff.

I have to say I agree about the bad attitudes in the store. I stopped in this store about a week ago and would have to say the guy working the register is one of the rudest people I have ever met in my life!

DOLLAR GENERAL IS THE WORST STORE ON PLANET EARTH. THE EMPLOYEES AND MANAGERS THAT RUN THE STORE/S ARE COMPLETE TOOLS. IT'S TIME TO SHOW DOLLAR GENERAL THAT WE THE SHOPPER/CONSUMER ARE NOT GOING TO TAKE THE ABUSE ANYMORE. I HAVE BEEN PERSONALLY HARASSED AT DOLLAR GENERAL ON HWY 79 IN PARIS TN. NOW TWICE, I'M READY TO PRESS CHARGES. DOLLAR GENERAL HAS SOMETHING COMING I'M SURE. SO PLEASE JUST DONT SHOP THERE ANYMORE, DONT DO IT. YOU WILL BE A BETTER PERSON FOR IT 8)

I have stopped at the Dollar General on hwy 66 (Kodak) and have to agree this is a totally crappy store. The employees are so rude. And the manager is not any better. Seems people let authority go to their heads. Some seems to get the "I'm so powerful" attitude and think they can treat people however they want to and nothing can be done about it.

Dollar General was in serious trouble a while back and was bought out by another company. Businesses everywhere are going under. If enough people stop shopping these crappy stores then it would hurt them. And like others have said pretty much everything that's worth anything is cheaper at Wal Mart.

STAY AWAY FROM THESE STORES. ESPECIALLY THIS ONE!

Well...unless you just like being abused.

Don't be too hard on the employees they are just venting their wrath over how they are treated by management. Avoid franchise stores completely and buy local wherever possible, and eventually they will go away.

UncaRay- I will agree with part of what you say.
I have witnessed managers totally rip an employee apart right in front of everyone. So then they stand there looking totally foolish. Not a lot you can do because if you say something back you get fired. But at the same time some employees are just smart mouthed because they can get away with it. However it happens whether it's managers or employees in general I will not keep shopping at a store where I am treated badly.
*There are some stores I wouldn't care if they went away.

Maybe you should read your handbook. If you are indeed an employee then you KNOW it says you are NOT allowed to post about Dollar General in public forums. I would bet everything I have that you have the same attidute in the store that you have on here. No wonder people don't want to shop at DG. Everything in there is CRAP amd way over priced. If you don't like what people are saying then tough! And I doubt very seriously you keep YOUR store clean. No DG I have ever been in is clean. They are all trashed.
And it's not the customer's fault. If the employees would get off their dead rear ends and do something then they could keep the store cleaner. And it's been proved that the largest theft from Dollar General is from the employees.
AND THAT IS FACT.

I don't care for the stores much, I feel like I am at a flea market, lol. But the one in Seymour is in pretty good shape and the people have been nice the couple of times I have gone in there. I have been to several others though, and I was not happy at all. Most of them are dirty, the people are rude and they are full of junk. Although it has to be said, I wouldn't be happy working in there either, it probably is miserable to put up with complaints out of their control, rude customers and minimum wage. I try to remember that when dealing with it, I wouldn't want that job and that person probably doesn't either, but can't find anything better right now.
